    Was playing a Bomb Jack on MAME and amazingly I've only just realised after all these years that the music from level 2 sounds exactly like Lady Madonna by The Beatles:

    EDIT: Not only that but just I've noticed that Bomb Jack has "BJ" across his chest. [​IMG]



    The actual level itself (after 0.55):


    Turns out the developers managed to license the song for the game though in some reissues and ports they use a tune from Mighty Bomb Jack.

    Another Beatles song in a game:



    Soundalikes:



    ^ Don't quite get it myself.



    ^ I guess I can now its pointed out.

    Any others...that isn't Rock Band related.

    I always thought both Mother/Earthbound Zero and Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne's Game Over songs sounded somewhat like Because.

    Mother (this kinda sounds like a mix between Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata and Because.):


    Nocturne:


    Because:


    Yeah... Maybe not. Oh well.

    Maybe the Earthbound one is sort of similar if you're hearing for it but thats all. [​IMG]
